familiar? some say it sounds like a decade ago when he heard george w. bush make his case for war in iraq. the similarities are just a few. take a listen. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with bilogical and chemical weapons. it possesses ballistic missiles and promotes international terror and seeks nuclear weapons. >> my next guest says there are far more differences between president bush's action in iraq ten years ago and president obama's desire to act in syria. jane newton small is time magazine's correspondent. good to see you as always. we should let our audience know setting up those similarities, that's the first line from your article. tell us why you think they're not similar. >> well, first of all, the object of the action and that regime change. about ten years ago george w. bush really wanted to topple hussein. barack obama does not want to topple assad because they're very worried if they do there will be a vacuum of power in syria and it will become a failed state and al qaeda could take over.
it was reasonable why it was george bush, bill clinton, ronald reagan, any president who takes the time to speak to the american people where they are, be that's his obligation. i thought it was a good idea. as long as is he doesn't choose to only speak to jay leno, i think this is fine for obama to do. >> to stay on the issue of the terror alerts because that is obviously major news at the moment, 19 embassies and consulates, u.s. consulates closed around the world. there were drone strikes in yemen, two attacks were foiled also in yemen. there's obviously a lot of things happening behind the scenes that we don't know about. as you say, the president comes on jay leno sort of tells us what he can tell us. but do you think perhaps he was able to allay fears as to the terror alert that americans are exposed to at the moment? >> i don't think so. i mean, and unfortunately, it's because i think fear is just a part of american life now. i mean, since 9/11, we're sort of dulled to the pain, but we live with the expectation that the men and women who are fighting abroad in the middle east, that the me

this week when they heard president george w. bush needed a stent inserted to clear a blockage near his heart. in this week's "american journey" report, tom foreman shows us how this incident could be a wake-up call for others who think they are not at risk for heart disease. >> reporter: in office and out, george w. bush has been regarded by many as the most fit president ever, mountain biking, running, swimming, golfing, weightlifting, and laboring on his ranch. his annual physicals while in office found him in excellent health with no history of hypertension or diabetes and low to very low coronary artery disease risk. so when physicians found a heart blockage and inserted a stent to reopen an artery, some people may have been stunned, but not dr. barron lerner. >> people shouldn't assume just because they exercise a lot that they don't have a heart problem. >> reporter: he wrote a book called "when illness goes public." he says when famous people face illness, this is the good that almost always follows, public awareness and action rise sharply. when betty ford disclosed she had bre
president george w. bush made his case for going to war with iraq and why mideast dictator was an essential step for both the united states and the world. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with biological and chemical weapons, possesses ballistic missiles, promotes international terror, and seeks nuclear weapons. >> nearly 11 years later another u.s. president is explaining why he feels getting involved in the middle east is in the best interest of the u.s. people. my next guest though says the similarities between the two conflicts are few. jane newton small is a terrific reporter and times magazine reporter. you've written an article that a lot of team are talking about for "time," "six ways syria 2013 isn't iraq in 2003." differences you say include how the u.s. is handling the regime, the time commitment given by the u.s., the support from the arab world and yooirp, weapons of mass destruction, and how much support there is from congress. let's begin with the first difference you list. regime change. explain
george w. bush did before launching the invasion of iraq and saddam hussein gave him one last chance to do the right thing. refused and as a result, the war in iraq started. presummer bly, could give assad one last chance to avert u.s. military action. >> he could and kerry in his statement the other day, also spoke of the possibility of some point of some kind of negotiated settlement and this may be the president's sort of last moment. he says it's either now or never and he could in fact be doing that right now publicly before he decides to take any kind of military action. >> because yesterday pointedly, s secretary of state, john kerry, he didn't issue any kind of formal demand. he laid out all the u.s. evidence. the u.s. has concluded with quote, high confidence, that the iraqi government used chemical weapons to kill more than 1,400 people and wound thousands of others, but he didn't say directly to the regime in damascus, here is what you must do to calm this situation down. >> and what john kerry did say is the question is no longer when we know. he said the question is what
the short answer is he was a candidate, everyone was angry at george bush for taking what they call unilateral actions. it was an easy thing to say. now looks different on the other side. >> dana, i think that the american people are concerned that again america doesn't have an -- doesn't have an end game. so let's say you, you know, perform some sort of military strike on syria, you're not taking out assad. well, then what? like do you just -- i don't know, teach syria a lesson and move on? because there could be larger consequences. >> absolutely, that is one of the major concerns that you're hearing from members of congress and even the speaker who wants the president to be more specific to answer those questions. it's, i think, another major reason why you're not seeing the house speaker, for example, call the house back to session. they're not in session, not going to be back for about two weeks. because this is one area where republicans don't want to embarrass the president. they want the united states broadly to succeed on the world stage against some regimes, regime like --
believed that george w. bush needed to go back to congress for reauthorization of the war in iraq. but as president of the united states, he intervened in libya. he had a surge in afghanistan. and he didn't go to congress for permission on either of those. so i think it's a real interpretation of how -- of how you interpret presidential power and whether he has the constitutional authority to do this on his own. but if history is any guide, i would have to say that president after president does act without congressional authorization. i mean, the last time we really did this was in 2002. and so i think that this president's going to say he's on -- he's on firm ground. what he needs to get is public opinion. >> which seems to have evolved since our polling early in may. numbers are dwindling when it comes to support. jay, gloria mentioned iraq. we heard the president make a big distinction on this. he said it would not be like iraq. take a listen. >> if, in fact, we can take limited, tailored approaches, not getting drawn into a long conflict, not a repetition of, you know, iraq,
not made a decision yet, former president george w. bush is weighing in. >> the president has a tough decision to make and if he decides to use our military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he made mischief. the president has to make a tough call. i know you are trying to suddenly rope me into the issues of the day. i refuse to be roped in. >> our chief political analyst gloria borger joins me from washington. you listened to secretary of state john kerry today. you heard the former president, reporters trying to ask questions of him. it's not a matter of what do we do about it, we be the united states? >> i think if you listened to the secretary of state, it was very clear that he believed he didn't need to wait for information from the weapons inspectors, from the united nations. he said very clearly that a u.n. investigators can't tell us anything we don't already know. and between the secretary of state and a background call that senior administration officials had with journalists, it's very clear they b
